Sommerhaus Piu Prefab Vacation Home

German designers Patrick Frey + Björn Götte have designed a prefab vacation home for those who could use an escape from the daily grind.  The Sommerhaus Piu Prefab Vacation Home is simple-yet-stunning, a small modern cabin with all the amenities its owners will need for a weekend, a month or even a summer at the lake.

Sommerhaus Piu features a natural wood exterior with horizontally-slatted walls and a slightly-pitched roof.  The roof, terraced porch and edge section are a charcoal color in contrast, providing visual separation between livable space and functional shelter.  Floor-to-ceiling windows open the interior living room to the terraced porch and the environment beyond, while the bedroom section is closed-off for privacy.

The Sommerhaus Piu prefab is perfect for vacation homes or even full-time residences.  Traditionally, prefab homes are more sustainably built and less expensive than site-built homes, giving buyers of the Sommerhaus Piu a lower-cost, environmentally-sound option for their second home.  Just find a track of land that feels like home, ship in a Sommerhaus Piu and connect water and electricity, and you’re good to go.  [via designboom]
